20 years. How can it be?
Of course, when I reminisce about 1996 like it was yesterday, I just sound old!
The reality is that 20 years is a LONG time, and looking back, I am amazed by how much has changed. Back then, no staffing firm had a website. No one had even dreamed of social media. Even email was relatively new.
In the past two decades, the staffing industry has greatly matured. And marketing barely looks like it did back then.
As I reflect on 20 years, I realize how much I have personally changed (and not just my hairline!). I’ve been lucky enough to be surrounded by smart, hard-working people, great clients, and lots of friends and colleagues in the staffing industry.
